Sé Sullivan Ph.D. is currently an independent scholar. Sé—also a journeyperson carpenter, and performance artist—received their PhD from California Institute of Integral Studies. A self-identified Gender identity non-participant, a survivor of the UCLA Gender Identity Research Clinic (1963-1994), and a big old QUEER, their front-row seat to both the development of–and the resistance to–binary heteronormative Gender birth assignments that inform their academic scholarship help shape the conversations involved in the deconstruction of a medicalized construction of Gender apparatus.
I am working with folks in the field of documentary film to create a film that helps tell the stories of those impacted as children by the Gender Apparatus. Once the direction of the story is solidified I will be looking for producing partners to help us.
In the fissure between the historical and contemporary conversations on the performance of Gender is resistance.
